Tremendous year for Garnet. I am not sure if this is significant but SWAT has only lost to CC teams and beaten all other foes. Show them how it is done in the Centennial.

Here's hoping Swat wins it for the MidAtlantic. The last time a MidAtlantic team got to the final against a WIAC team; they were up 18 with 12 mins to go and lost by 3. Yes it's still somewhat irksome today.  :-\

It's also been 18 years since an M A team won it all.

GO GARNET!!!

Tough way to end the season, but a great season for The Garnet.

I add my congratulations to the Garnet for a terrific season.  I would not be surprised to see them back in the finals again next year.

Swat Fan #1

Agree that Coach Kosmalski could move on. However----- he has most of his talented team returning next year which might be a reason for another year at Swat.  I think it would take a very good D-1 offer to pry him loose.

How about Coach Robinson?  Will he retire?  Think other CC coaches will remain in place.

Congratulations to Cam Wiley for many deserved honors.  The young man carries himself like a class act.

To be honest, I think Kosmalski is content where he is right now. His name was popping up a lot in previous coaching change off seasons, but last year his name popped up once - and it was because a national firm was basically calling everyone for the WashU job. Otherwise, his name NOT being mentioned for a lot of good jobs was more noteworthy.

Sure, taking the team to the national title game can change things, but I am not sure it will. Kosmalski apparently got a good contract extension 18 months ago (if rumors are true) and I don't know if the push to go to D1 is that strong anymore. Furthermore, this Swat team is loaded for next season - only losing Wiley.

As for the rest of the conference ... I don't see any reason for there to be any other coaching changes on the men's (women's side: the McDaniel job will most likely be open). I always worry at McDaniel about Curley, but I also get the sense they are happy with the efforts that program has been making of late. Otherwise, I am not sure what jobs would be open and why.

Per Wiley - that young man and come a long way and really grown as an individual. He should be applauded for whom he has become.

 Great season Swat!  Congrats to Coach K!  Congrats to Wiley as well.  From what I know, great young man.  You should see some of the videos he made for the NCAA during the tournament.  They are posted on Twitter.  Represented himself, his teammates, his coaches and his school very well.

A podcast interview with Swarthmore Coach Kosmalski definitely worth listening to. Doesn't sound like he wants to go anywhere else.

Understand it is a bit early but any buzz about the teams for the upcoming year?

Any decent recruiting classes?

Favorites likely Swarthmore/Hopkins/F&M?

Gettysburg has a very talented and large recruiting class coming in.  First recruiting class for Coach Dunne.

I saw some names for Swat and F&M back in March, but I think they were still recruits at that point.  I got a lot more incoming freshman tips last year when we were doing that silly 1,000 round mega-draft.

1,000 round mega draft?!?  :o

In the Multi-Region section, there's a fantasy game area - last year someone had the bright idea to just draft hundreds of players and play a gigantic d3 fantasy basketball game.  It was crazy, but we spent the whole summer picking players and pickings were getting slim by the end, so people were offering incoming freshmen names.
